I never really planned on making action films. It just kind of happened.

You can see him reading a book on the plane in his big action film Passenger 57
(1992). The book is "The Art of War" which is the same title as a movie that he starred in eight years later, though unrelated to it.
Characters in his films, usually his own characters, frequently quote the literary classic "The Art of War", written by Sun Tzu around 500 B.C.E., which is widely regarded as the single best resource for training military special forces groups worldwide.
